PA to Deputy Executive Director
Unicef ensures more of the world’s children are vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation. We have done more to influence laws and policies to help protect children than anyone else. We get things done. And we’re not going to stop until the world is a safe place for all our children.
We are currently recruiting for a PA to provide proactive and effective support to the Deputy Executive Director for Communications, Advocacy and Programmes (CAP). The CAP Directorate is responsible for delivering Unicef UK’s external communications and brand, programme and advocacy objectives. The Deputy Executive Director oversees the directorate and is part of the Executive team.
As PA, you will provide the full spectrum of administrative support to the Deputy Executive Director and you will have the opportunity to lead on a variety of projects. This is a busy but varied and interesting PA role, including both one to one and team administration support, planning, coordinating and servicing meetings and events, financial administration and servicing meetings.
We are looking for an exceptionally organised and proactive PA. You will have experience of providing support at senior management or director level, and you will be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment, managing conflicting priorities and competing demands. The work you produce will be consistently high quality and you will have excellent attention to detail. You will excel at building professional and positive relationships, both within Unicef UK and with external contacts, and have the confidence to take decisions and deal with routine matters on behalf of the Deputy Executive Director.
This is a great opportunity to contribute to making the world a better place for children.

Closing date: 5pm, 23 April 2019.
We particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQ+ candidates, candidates with disabilities, and from men, because we would like to increase the representation of these groups at this level. We want to do this because we know greater diversity will lead to even greater results for children.
Unicef UK promotes equality, diversity and inclusion in our workplace. We make employment decisions by matching business needs with skills and experience of candidates, irrespective of age, disability (including hidden disabilities), gender, gender identity or gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation.
We are happy to talk about flexible working, personal growth, and to promote a workplace where you can be yourself and achieve success based only on your merit.
The successful candidate will be required to apply for a criminal records check. A criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us. This will depend on the nature of the role and the circumstances of your offences.
